I am a 6 foot tall male. I lift regularly. And size small t-shirts for me just fine. There is something wrong with the clothing industry.

5-11 who mixes in a little weight training to my gym routine. Just bought a small flannel buttonup shirt from walmart. The shoulders are slightly too small width wise (a usual problem for all shirts) and the abdomen is a bit on the loose side. I consider that to be about as good a fit as I will find for less than $100 + a tailor. Most cheap smalls these days have huuuge abdomen areas, they might as well be a mix of small top+large added on the bottom.

I used to wear mediums. In another 10 years I'll be at xs I guess.

5'11" here too. I've bought "athletic" fit dress shirts before that were still huge on me in the abdomen and shoulders too.

There is really something wrong that we need a FUPA cloth industry.

Vanity sizing is such an inconvenience. I even know fats who don't like it. It doesn't make anyone feel better, it just confuses and annoys everyone and damages smaller people.

Yeah, especially with online shopping. I love to buy handmade stuff from Etsy but when they just say "fits S-M" or "size 8-12" how the fuck do I know if they actually mean a human size M or a pregnant beluga whale?

Avoid Old Navy and other stores aimed at fat millenials. Humans have been sized out of those places. You might still have hope in a more high brow store that has a classy image to maintain.

Old Navy is probably the worst perpetrator of vanity sizing I've ever seen. I normally do okay, at 6 feet and 125 pounds, but I can't fit into anything there.

Agreed. I'm 5'6" and 130 and I should not be wearing an xs, but that's all I can wear at that store.

It's fucking terrible. I'm 5'7 & 118lbs, so very similar stats to you. Finding longer jeans at my size used to be difficult but now it's near impossible. I liked being able to shop at Abercrombie or Ruehl because it was convenient and they had jeans in 00L, now that size is too big. Yet the same brand of jeans purchased from those places a few years ago fit fine - so it's not me. Sure I like 7 for All Mankind, True Religion, Rockin' Republic, but I don't always want to spend so much. Even Guess has fallen victim now, their smallest size is now baggy on me. Good thing I take good care of my clothing because all my jeans from pre-extreme vanity sizing days still look great, but it would be nice if brands would stop catering to the slovenly hogs of the world. As if they need their delusion catered to even more. If you give the moo-monsters two pairs of jeans that are exactly the same, they will always purchase the pair with the smaller number on the label. Why? If they're so proud to be obese shapeless blobs, it shouldn't matter, right? God I hate obeasts, they ruin everything.

Shopping online at Amazon Japanese retailers works well for me (m, 177cm, 75kg). In the States, I wear a small shirt despite having a BMI of 24.2 (leg muscles). In Japan, I'm still a medium.

I started shopping on AliExpress and it's the same - the clothes are a proper size, and no way a ham could ever buy anything for sale there. Just have to be careful about quality.

IDK if yall even try on the clothes at these stores. I'm 5'7, 115, and their size 0 fits me well. It's sort of baggy but better than buying 120$ pants I have to get tailored anyway.

Their shirts are a goddamn travesty, though.

I knew something was fucky when I started to drown in mediums. my BMI is 21-22.

Same BMI and smalls are starting to get bigger on me. When I was a long-torsoed, busty teen, I usually almost always took a large or even an extra large because I didn't like anything too form fitting. Now large is a fucking tent.

Same BMI here as well. The last time I fit into smalls before my weight loss was when I was a 105 lb middle schooler. And now, a couple XS dresses I got the other day are loose on me.

I sympathize. I'm 2 inches shorter than her, same weight, and have been vanity sized out of almost everything budget-friendly.

You're on a budget?! How could you possibly not be planet sized? Don't know you know that eating anything but McDonalds and similar fast food simply isn't affordable on a budget?

::sigh::

I wish I got more of a chuckle out of that. I'm just frustrated that, like you, budget-friendly clothing seems to be synonymous with fat-friendly (only) these days.

Because God forbid you cook your own food in bulk, freeze it in human friendly portions, and eat those throughout the week.

There are many blogs out there of frugal women who buy XL sized outfits and repurpose them into two new outfits. As the vanity sizing trend continues, 1 outfit could turn into 3 or more new outfits. Maybe even be repurposed as a circus tent, the possibilities are endless.

I feel you. I struggle to find male us pants with 26-28 inch waist. I end up ordering this shit online. Even places like Hot Topic are a struggle. As more people get fat the fewer are in shape. I've been the same size since high school and it's really depressing knowing that in 2010-2011 I had a way easier time shopping for clothes. For males the sizes are still pmuch the same, I just have a much harder time finding the smaller sizes that fit me AKA normal people clothes.

Hot topic is horrible here. All huge clothes. I can never find shirts my size. I'm already a s/xs and it's getting harder and harder to find clothes that are affordable.

Yeah I just shop online now. Much easier if I know what size to wear and I don't have to waste my time looking for clothes that most likely won't be my size. The lack of xs and small shirts make me sad too :(

On to xxs it is, to please the hams. I wonder with the size 0, what if they need clothes smaller than that, do they just not have them or go -1, -2, etc?

Pants waists are the most frustrating of them all. I've got some older jeans that have a 32" waist and fit me perfectly, I only need a belt for appearances. I bought some new ones with a 32" and they start to sag if I try to walk away from my closet without a belt.

It's a fucking circle measured in inches. How the fuck can you vanity size that, just go by the number of inches it is.

I also stayed the same size since high school and can no longer find pants in most stores like I could before. I'm not sure in which year exactly the decision was made that men's pants would from now begin at a low-selling 30" and expand up to nearly infinity (highest I've seen is 52").

They will try to force fit to make it look bad.
